In Islam, Qurbani is the act of animal sacrifice, done during the blessed month of dhul hijjah. It is carried out to mark Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his only son, Ismail for the sake of God. Qurbani embeds within us the spirit of total obedience to Allah’s (SWT) will. It teaches us an important lesson about our dependence and reliance on God and his divine plan.

Muslims commemorate the day when Ibrahim almost sacrificed his son on God’s command, before God miraculously placed a ram before him, instead of his son. By offering an animal sacrifice, Muslims help feed the needy during the celebratory days of Eid and also share meat with their loved ones as a token of gratitude.

And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead, we called to him, “O Ibrahim, you have fulfilled the vision”. Indeed, we thus reward the doers of good. Indeed, this was the clear trial and We ransomed him with a great sacrifice’. 

– Qur’an 37:103-107

Qurbani – or Udhiya – is a sacrifice that is made in the Islamic month Dhul Hijjah during the celebrations of Eid al Adha. The sacrifice made is typically a goat, sheep, cow or camel and is reflective of the personal sacrifice that Prophet Ibrahim (S.A.) was prepared to make for the love of Allah (SWT).

The significance of this sacrifice, for Qurbani in the UK and around the world, is that it symbolises all that Prophet Ibrahim (S.A.) was ready to give up – by sacrificing his precious son, and allows Muslims to be humbled by his ultimate gesture towards God at his will.

Qurbani Explained

Qurbani is the sacrifice of an animal, held at the end of Eid Al Adha. The sacrificed animal can either be:

A goat (at least one-year-old)

A bull, cow or buffalo (two years old minimum)

A sheep (at least six months old)

The animal should have no injuries or broken bones – including its horns. It should be sacrificed immediately after Eid-ul-Adha prayers or as close to this time as possible.

The meat of a Qurbani animal is divided into three parts:

one to be shared out among the family, friends or neighbours

one for yourself

one to be given to those in need

If the Qurbani donation is a goat or sheep, it is enough just for one person, but a camel, cow, bull, or buffalo can be a donation from as many as seven people.

Qurbani is an obligation for all Muslims who meet the following requirements:

They are of sound mind

They are past the age of puberty

They have disposable income above and beyond their essential needs

‘Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.’ 

– Qu’ran 6:162

 

The word Qurbani means “a way or means of approaching someone” or “nearness”.

It is a way for individual Muslims to approach the level of submission to God shown by the Prophet Ibrahim (S.A) at the moment atop Mount Arafat when he was readying to sacrifice his beloved son.

The Prophet Ibrahim (S.A) was willing to give up that which was precious to him beyond measure, that which could not be replaced, that which had come into his life despite so many in the world around him telling him it would never happen.

The act of Qurbani today is at the heart of Eid al Adha and is a deeply meaningful and important event. Those who give Qurbani are demonstrating their submission to Allah’s (SWT) will, just as Prophet Ibrahim (S.A.) did before them.

Qurbani prices relate to the amount of money that a Muslim needs to donate so that Qurbani can be distributed amongst those in need around the world. The exact price varies depending upon where your donation will be going, as the cost of the animals to be sacrificed differs from country to country.

Eid al Adha is the celebration of the submission to Allah’s (SWT) will that was expressed by the Prophet Ibrahim (S.A).

Against both his own wishes and the temptations of the devil, the Prophet Ibrahim (S.A) took his only son Ismael (A.S) to the top of Mount Arafat to sacrifice him to Allah (SWT). At the last moment, Allah (SWT) miraculously switched the boy with a beast. Ismael (A.S) stood beside his father, completely unharmed! An astonishing miracle.

Eid al Adha is a celebration where Muslims look to refocus their own lives, seeking out Allah’s (SWT) will so that they may submit themselves to it more perfectly. Qurbani is the sacrifice which follows this holy and blessed celebration.
